How to Remove Glass Mirror from Your Bathroom Wall

Removing a glass mirror from your bathroom wall may seem like a simple task; however, it can be quite challenging and dangerous if mishandled properly.

Keep reading to learn how to remove glass mirrors from your bathroom wall with this step-by-step guide and learn when you should call in a professional to complete the process.

How to Remove a Glass Mirror from Your Bathroom Wall

Accidentally dropping and shattering a mirror—especially one that covers the length of an entire wall—while removing it from the wall can lead to severe cuts and other injuries from broken glass.

Take safety precautions and wear protective gloves and eyewear when prying a mirror from its original place.

Because glass mirror removal often requires more than one person, call in a professional if you’re unsure whether you can handle the mirror removal process on your own.

If you feel comfortable removing a glass mirror from your bathroom wall by yourself, follow these steps:

  1. Cover the mirror with heavy-duty packing tape so the glass won’t crack or shatter. It’s also a good idea to cover your sinks and other appliances with a blanket to protect them from any dust or debris.
  2. Gently insert wooden shims in the gaps between the mirror and the wall.
  3. Using a pry bar, begin gently pulling the glass away from the wall. Continue to use steady pressure and work along the sides of the mirror.
  4. When you get near the bottom of the mirror, support it from the top to prevent the whole mirror from popping off at once.
  5. Once it’s loose enough, carefully carry it out of the bathroom and keep it in a safe place.
